One finger head. Solid Belgian strong flavor...a little over carbonated, but it gives it a champagne quality.

VDuquerroux (107) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A clear sparkling brown beer with a large white foam. Long persistence. Aroma of caramel, herb, sugar and a bit metal. Medium bitter, sugar sweet. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation, long sweet finish. Overall, a bit disappointing. Average good belgian ale.

crlnts (59) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 5, 2014
Head lasted for 76 seconds. Big creamy white bubbles. Lacing. Color is light brown tainted with a dash of ruby. Warmth and sweetness of alcohol at first. Very light bitterness which remains in the aftertaste. Fruits: from the top of my head, light cherry and black currant. Enjoyed with a stale slice of bread and some industrial mayo. Not sure how it affected the whole experience.

Muggus69 (1108) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 21, 2014
OLD NOTES JUL 13, 2004 Pours slighty hazy deep rubyish amber body with big solid head. Sweet spicey aroma with alot of of fruitiness to it, apple and grape possibly. The body is not as full as I expected from a Belgian strong, alcohol warmth is apparent. Dry with a fair bit of spice to it. The body has caramel maltiness to it and sweet fruit flavours. Although not as full as other Belgian strongs, a nice drop.
